2016 Match Of The Year Project - Indies

Post by coalition77 » Sun Jan 17, 2016 11:19 am

In order to make the process a little more streamlined this year, we are attempting to split up the Match Of The Year candidates from the WWE and the Indies into separate threads.

Rules will be familiar to long-term forum members. If a match happens in the Indies, and you think it's worthy, then you nominate it in this thread. If someone agrees, they'll second the nomination, and it will officially be on the ballot. From there, everyone gets to vote Yes or No, and we build an aggregate of +/-, with the original nomination & seconding counting as Yes votes (so don't vote again on the same match). At the end of the year, we compile a list of the top 30-50 matches (depending on what the numbers look like), and that becomes the final ballot. Once that's done, all the previous voting no longer matters, and everyone is allowed to put together a top 20 list, in order, which will be handled as secret ballots through PM. I will then tally the votes based on the top 20 lists (20 points for a 1st place vote, 19 points for a 2nd place vote, etc), and then publish the list to forums. If we are able to complete the MOTY projects for both entities, the winners will square off in a 1v1 poll to determine the MOTY as voted by you the forum members of Wrestleview.

If you have any questions, feel free to send a PM (please don't ask in thread). With that said, feel free to begin nominations.

Second:

Shinsuke Nakamura vs AJ Styles - Wrestle Kingdom 10

I was expecting a superb match with these two, and I wasn't disappointed. A lot of back and forth, with each getting in their signature spots. Was a good lead in to the main event

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada - Wrestle Kingdom 10

I'm not quite sure where to begin with this match. The opening portion of the match was great, with Okada looking overmatched and in peril for a good bit. I liked the comeback, with Tanahashi still focusing on the legs of Okada to keep him from taking control of the match. The crescendo was simply amazing, with the advantage going back and forth. Okada with the frog splash and Tanahashi with the rainmaker was a nice touch. They have set the bar pretty high for the year.

Nominate:

Katsuyori Shibata vs. Tomohiro Ishii - Wrestle Kingdom 10

Believe it or not, this was my favorite match of the show. The tough guy "Can you top this?" routine was simply well done (At least from my perspective) by both wrestlers in this match.
